The principal is great and if you could have seen their Veteran's Day program, you would have wanted every military person to see it too. Their art shows are fun to see and their art work is special

An excellent-rich learning environment! The chidren's education is truly top priority at Elm Grove Elementary. Every staff member dedicates his/herself to 'raising the bar' each and everyday. That kind of dedication shines brightly within EGE!

I have a child with some classroom challenges, and every teacher we've had at Elm Grove have been wonderful wtih her! Even though the teachers have way too much to do and not enough time they've TAKEN the time to work with her needs to give her a great education. The school leadership has been very supportive as are all the staff there... as a parent you can't ask for a better environment for your child. I love Elm Grove!

They first helped my daughter when she had dislexia. She has blossomed into a beutiful 15 yr old and does not need any dislexia classes anymore the teachers are wonderful. The teachers are wonderful with my 10 year old that goes there now and has been on top of his assignments - has emailed me to let me know things and have stayed after when he has need help or to catch up on homwowork. The staff at Elm Grove are wonderful and will miss them dearly when he goes to 6th. I hope that they will have as wonderful teacher as they have had years to come. A+ A+ school!!!!!
